painting the stars: science, religion, and an evolving faith


Thursdays at 7 p.m. 

Through July 2      

Celebrating the communion of science and faith, featuring over a dozen leading theologians and progressive thinkers, Painting the Stars explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality.

Mystery is a condition of awe, of resting precisely in an unknowing, long enough for the silence to have its way with us. The goal of this curriculum is to create some space for us to inhabit this mystery more deeply, and explore the relationship between science, particularly evolution, and religion. Perhaps most importantly, the hope is that each participant will feel from the inside what it is like to be the presence of all this creativity showing up after 13.7 billion years as him or her. Without this felt sense of being one with the creative process that is ceaselessly animating life, the conversation will remain objective and academic. We invite you to engage these seven weeks with an awareness that you are not separate from the creativity that produced you.           Bruce Sanguin, Author of If Darwin Prayed

The format for each 1½ hour session includes a 20-minute video and guided discussion. Participation at every session not required.
Popcorn provided!
When I have a terrible need of dare I say, ‘religion’?
then I go outside at night and paint the stars.”
